I’m an experienced graphic designer with a love for creating stuff. Flyers; posters; t-shirts; logos – if it needs designed, I’ll take care of it with the minimum of fuss. Based in Aberdeen, Scotland, I provide print and web design services to clients all over the world. The individuals, startups and SMEs I work for hail from a range of industries. Extreme sports companies, boutique bars, photographers and general outdoor types form the bulk of my clients, though I also do creative stuff for less creative companies. Whether I’m designing letterheads for a sole trader or a logo for an oil company, I apply myself fully to the project. Working efficiently but meticulously, I create clean, contemporary designs that meet the client’s brief and exceed their expectations. With over 5 years’ experience as a professional designer, I’ve earned a reputation for producing consistently-good work that is original and engaging. Great design isn’t created in a vacuum; it’s inspired by the people, places and culture we choose to surround ourselves with. I’m fortunate to work with some creative clients and to live in a region that appears to have been built for extreme sports. Provided I get the occasional weekend for plummeting downhill on my bike or plunging into the North Sea with my board, I can handle the rigours of the graphic design game – without losing the love for creating stuff that got me into it in the first place. If you’re seeking a professional logo design, flyers/brochures or a slick new website, I’ve got the skills and the will to get involved. Tell me what you have in mind and I’ll conjure up a design that will encapsulate everything that’s great about your company. Email me, call me or scribble your idea on the back of a napkin and press it into my palm – I’ll take care of the rest.
I began my career as an in-house graphic designer working as part of a small team. My main duty was to provide visuals for clients using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop and to prepare artwork for printing in. Other duties included web design and collaborating with the marketing department on various promotions and catalogues.

In 2013 I ventured out on my own, focusing on the sort of work I have a real passion for. Working with clients ranging from boutique bars to motor racing teams, I produce attention-grabbing visuals, vehicle graphics and hand-painted, airbrushed helmets. Adobe CS5 in Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator are my tools.
CP & Co is a small agency that provides design and print services to local businesses. My duties included liaising with clients, designing logos and identities, brochures, adverts, exhibition stands and vehicle livery, as well as web design and project management. Adobe CS3 Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign were regularly used along with QuarkXpress.
